2. Stripping a '90 Plymouth Laser Turbo FWD

Bought the engine donor from ebay for $1000 before I realized I would end up making the Colt project AWD. I drove this car home and the ECU fried the next day, but the engine was in great shape. PA car, very rusty, this one took 4 hours because I took a dinner break.

6. 4g63 longblock assembly
All parts ordered and accounted for. Bagged, tagged and marked with torque specs. Assembly took 2.5 hours... but the 14 hours of prep work, 2 weeks in a machine shop, and wrong-parts-delivered fiascoes straightened out prior to assembly.





4. Tearing down a '90 Turbo 4g63 engine
Decided to rebuild the engine to leave nothing in question.





3. Stripping a AWD Eagle Talon
This car was given to me in trade for fixing someone's car. It had a trashed head and good shortblock, but I wanted the drivetrain. I needed everything. I took it all. I had a spare head and could have just fixed it, but the Colt said "no".





7. Removing the Colt's old rear end assembly
There is no engineering problem that time and money can't fix. Changing a FWD econo-box into an AWD sleeper. Removing the 4-lug hubs, drum brakes, rear hubs, crossbars, springs, trunk, gas tank, etc...
